They were terribly sorry    when they separated.

Neither of them want it;    it was the circumstances.

The need to survive    made one of them

go far away—   to New York or Canada.

Their love however    was not the same as before;

their attraction had    gradually diminished,

the attraction had    diminished a lot.

But to separate,    they didn’t want that.

It was the circumstances.—   Or perhaps Destiny

appeared as an artist    separating them now

before their feelings disappeared,   before Time changed them;

for each the other will    remain for ever

that twenty four years    old, handsome young man.
